Dimanche Rouge Performance Festival, Helsinki Art Museum, Finland
The performance is inspired by the 16th century Dutch still life paintings - Vanitas. In a symbolical way Vanitas express transience of life, death, immortality of the soul. Through the use of elaborated symbols, the paintings remind of human connection to nature and of the fact that no physical form can last forever. This makes the paintings memorials of subtle and mysterious beauty.
